I have chronic (3 years) unexplained abdominal pain, jaundice, enlarged spleen, low platelette count, dark urine, low urine output, non-cancerous non infectious tumors on tibeia, migraines lasting for 5 weeks, sporatic difficulty swallowing, sporatic cold sweating with fainting. No doctors have been able to give any diagnosis. Does anyone have any help for me and my family?

  • I suggest you research porphyria as many of the symptoms you have,especially the dark urine,abd pain,and jaundice.You will find a wealth of knowledge from the porphyria group @yahoo.com.I recommend this site as many others offer vague,incomplete discriptions of porph.I am not a health professional but I do suffer from this disease.It is difficult to dx,many drs are unfamiliar with the disease and proper testing methods.I know first hand how difficult it is to deal with chronic pain,hang in there,never give up in your search for a dx.I wish you all the best.God Bless
